Happy Winter in October!

October 4, 2018  |   Found in Advocacy


Hey UCalgary!

I can’t believe it’s already October; I hope you all enjoyed the few days of fall we had! If I haven’t met you yet, I’m Sagar Grewal, your SU President, here with another short email to help keep you up to speed on what’s happening around campus!

The SU is having a By-Election to fill several vacancies on our student council. Voting days for the By-Election are Oct. 10, 11, and 12. You can vote online from your student centre or in person at polling stations in MacHall’s North Courtyard, in ICT, or in the Education link from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. More info on candidates, their platforms, and the By-Election itself can be found here.

Are you looking to get involved with the SU? You should consider joining my President’s Consultative Task Force (PCTF). This is a great opportunity for you to make a real difference on campus, by advising me on issues that matter to you. For more information or to register, click here. The deadline to apply is Oct. 14.

Do you have a professor who makes going to class a magical experience? If so, you should nominate them for a Teaching Excellence Award! It’s easy: just complete the short online form. The nomination deadline for Fall 2018 semester is Oct. 19.

Have you spent some time in the lab and made a unique discovery? Will your critical analysis lead to positive social change? Share your accomplishments at the 2018 Undergraduate Research Symposium for the chance to win a scholarship. Abstracts are due Oct. 12 at 4:00 p.m. For more information or to submit an abstract, visit our website.

Have you been to The Den yet this year? We have some exciting things coming up this year: new rotating ThursDEN DJs, new programming, and a MASSIVE contest that starts Oct. 1 and runs the rest of the school year for a $3,000 travel voucher to Merit Travel. Want to know more? Sign up for our email newsletter or follow us on Facebook.

Finally, if you still have no idea what the SU is and what we do? You should check out our just released Report to the Community that outlines everything we did last year!
